The rooms were very large/spacious, modern in appearance and all the services we needed. Separate spa bath or shower. Most appreciated however was the proximity to the city centre/entertainment area and lake because loved the early morning walk along the lake, and walk to Plateau restaurant the previous evening. Nice stop over.

Driving around Taupo can be confusing. But Prince is so easy to find. It's literally 2 mins walk to McDs and really nice cafes and restaurants and the lake! The motel parking is secure, we felt very safe. Prince's wifi service is amazing, free and unlimited. It's perfect for working holidays. We had a meal at the Thai restaurant next... More

Good size and plenty of room.Very close to the Centre of Taupo...walking distance which suited us for shopping and dining. It was a very cold day and the room was warm. ( Heat pump) Unit was very clean. Bathroom is a little dated but very spacious and the reasonable price reflects the facilities.

Stayed for two nights. Half the price of other accommodation. Was clean , but really needs the bathroom tiles to be regrouted, along with the tiles on the kitchenette. If that was done it would make a big difference. Close to town.

Location was really good. We could walk to breakfast/dinner. The room itself was tired and our bed had roll-together. I was pleased to have free WiFi however. The kitchen area was tiny, but would have sufficed for basic meals.

Myself and wife went here on out way through North Island. We booked on booking.com and told them in the comments that it was our honeymoon. We arrived to find an upgraded room, chocolates, a bottle of wine, fresh flowers and rose petals on the bed. It was amazing and the only place on our whole honeymoon to actually do... More

We liked this place so much that when we came back through after picking up our son a few days later, we stayed here again. The wifi was strong (a rarity in NZ) and free (another rarity). The rooms were large and comfortable and clean. The bathroom was very large and offered a whirlpool bath. The property was inviting and... More

A last minute stop to break the journey home from Auckland. A prompt online booking service. Good value for money for the Alleyway unit, good sized room. Comfortable bed in a quiet unit, easy to locate within Taupo. Handy to everything I needed, 5 minute walk to town.

we did an overnight stay here & its location is great for the town . Just off the lakefront. The one bedroom unit was spacious and comfortable. The Thai restaurant on site was really good. Will certainly stay here again.
